 Hi,  
 My  mollies  have  finally  bred.  I  now  have  cute  looking  fry.  Cheering  
 Right  now  they  have  been  seperated  into  a  small  palstic  container,  this  container  is  floating  in  the  main  tank  itself.
 This  has  been  done  as  the  weather  is  still  cold  here  15-16C.
 I  have  fed  it  powered  flake,  powedered  down  very  fine,  and  it  seems  to  be  like  it.
 Any  thing  else  I  should  do?
 How  long  before  it  can  be  trf  to  main  tank,  right  now  they  are  one  day  old

 Congrats  mate.  The  feeling  of  seeing  new  life  in  your  aquarium(s)  is  quite  inexplicable  happiness.  I  still  jump  with  Joy  when  I  see  my  guppies  give  birth  Smile

 This  way  you  can  make  sure  they  will  not  be  eaten  by  other  tank  mates  and  also  gives  them  enough  to  eat.

 Most  livebearer  fry  are  larger  than  egg-laying  fishes.  This  also  gives  them  a  biggermouth.
 Crushed  flake  should  do  for  now.  Also  check  if  they  are  in  fact  eating  it  Try  giving  them  feeds  in  minimal  amounts  frequently  throughout  the  day.

 Check  the  other  tankmates  mouth  size.  At  one  day  old,  you  can  keep  them  in  the  same  container  for  another  week.  Then  you  can  introduce  the  molly  fry  back  to  the  tank.  Ensure  you  have  fine-leaved  plants  (Plastic/real)  to  help  the  fry  take  cover  when  some  boisterous  tank  mate  fancies  them  for  a  snack.

 Thats  cool.....
 
 IMO  Baby  Brine  Shrimps  or  microworms  would  make  the  best  fry  food.........

 I  agree  with  gokul...Freshly  hatched  brine  shrimp  and  microworms  are  a  better  choice  as  their  nutritional  value  is  high.

 While  live  foods  are  great,  is  is  usually  too  much  of  a  hassle  to  culture  them  for  a  couple  of  dozen  fry,  especially  livebearers,  which  do  well  on  prepared  foods.  
 
 They  will  do  well  on  flake  supplemented  with  greens.  Keep  up  regular  water  changes  and  throw  in  some  f/d  tubifex  once  a  week.
 
 If  all  the  other  fish  in  the  tank  are  mollies,  you  can  put  the  fry  back  in  2  weeks.  If  there  are  other  fish  in  there,  wait  till  the  fry  are  3/4"  at  the  very  least.

 Some  days  back  I  put  in  two  pairs  of  tiger  loaches  in  livebearer  tank  to  remove  snails.  Help  me  with  following
 1.  Snails  have  gone,  but  I  am  not  seeing  any  new  born  fry  now(they  removed  as  soon  s  I  see  them).  Is  it      possible  that  loaches  be  eating  them?
 2.  First  batch  is  now  25  days  old  and  are  about  1/2  inch  long.  Can  they  be  introduced  in  main  tank  which  has  only  mollies,  platies,  swordtails,  pleco,  tiger  loaches.

 Yes,  loaches  will  eat  fry  if  they  can  catch  them.
 
 No,  the  fry  are  too  small  to  be  introduced  to  the  main  tank  given  the  above.

 BTW,  how  many  baby  fish  (fry)  would  you  have  in  mollies  at  a  single  time?  And  during  the  course  of  time,  wouldn't  they  actually  outgrow  your  tank  capacity?  What  do  you  do  then?  Sell  them?
 
 Qs  from  a  newbie.

 Hi
 Although  I  am  not  a  expert  in  aquariums  and  this  is  my  first  livebearer  tank,  I  have  read  that  they  give  birth  to  30-40  fry  every  month.
 However  if  fry  remain  in  the  main  tank  their  chances  of  survival  are  minimum.  This  is  also  natural  process  of  selection  so  that  very  active  fry  will  survive.
 So  far  I  have  around  25  fry,  I  try  to  remove  them  as  soon  as  I  see  them.
 The  most  logical  thing  for  me  would  to  sell  them  but  parting  with  them  would  be  too  painful.    Very Happy  
   Very Happy    Very Happy

 Hi  guys
 I  now  have  10  molly  fry  and  one  platy  or  swordtail  fry  in  a  seperate  tank.
 The  molly  fries  are  growing  nicely  but  the  platy  fry  is  not  growing  so  well.
 Do  they  grow  slow  or  does  it  need  to  seperated  from  molly  fry  which  are  much  larger.
 Their  age  in  no  of  days  is  same

 platy  fries  are  of  a  slower  growth  .  Nothing  unusual  about  it.

 Regular  mollies  will  not  drop  more  than  20-30  fry.  Giant  sailfins  will  drop  close  to  a  100  fry.

 Hi  folks
 The  eldest  kid  is  now  2  months  old  and  nearly  1  inch  long.  
 Rest  are  still  small.
 Can  this  be  introduced  in  the  main  tank  now.  The  occupants  are  mollies,  swordtails,  yoyo  loach,  blue  gouramies.
 Will  leaving  this  larger  kid  with  his  smaller  brothers/  sisters  would  have  any  impact  on  younger  ones.
